Creating space to be alone

Finding time to be alone isn't always easy.Some steps that you can’t take to ensure that you get the time you need:

  • Be clear: Tell the people around you, whether they are roommates, family members, or your partner, that you need time alone.
  • Be specific: Let people know about what being alone means to you. 
  • Return the favor: If people are willing to take steps to ensure that you get some alone time, it is important for you to show them the same consideration.
  • Be flexible: If you are trying to find time for yourself when you don't live alone you need to be flexible for creating alone time.
